Aggressive Defense for Criminal Charges

St. Augustine Domestic Violence Lawyer

We proudly defend clients in Clay, Flagler, Putnam, and St. Johns County.

When the police are called into a domestic dispute, it is likely that someone will go to jail. It rarely matters what the circumstances of the dispute were or who was really at fault in the matter. If even a small bruise or a minor scratch on the alleged victim is evident, law enforcement will make an arrest.

Making matters worse, judges are required to issue no-contact orders prohibiting a person accused of domestic violence from returning to his or her home. If you have been accused of a domestic violence crime and have been arrested in St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra, St. Johns, or the surrounding areas of Florida, you should contact our firm immediately for your initial consultation with a domestic violence attorney.

What Happens If I Am Arrested for Domestic Violence?

If you are convicted of domestic assault or battery, you face potential jail time and a prolonged probation period. Additionally, individuals who admit responsibility for their role in a domestic violence case and pass a psychosocial evaluation by the Department of Children & Families must attend a 6-month Batterer's Intervention Program (BIP) as a mandatory condition of their probation. These harsh consequences can be minimized with the skilled legal assistance of a criminal defense attorney.

Often, a domestic violence case is based on "he said, she said" arguments. Even so, the prosecution may refuse to drop the case, which means you will need an attorney to defend you. For example, an experienced lawyer may be able to establish that the defendant merely acted in self-defense during the dispute, in which case the domestic violence charges may be reduced or dropped, or the case could be won at trial.

  • Thank you Brad for representing me and getting the job done!

    “I would like to thank Brad Waldrop for his representation in my Community Control violation case. I was facing 48 months in Florida State Prison in Flagler and Saint Johns County. From the moment I first called and Spoke to Mr. Waldrop to the end of my case he remained professional,knowledgeable and encouraging. Mr. Waldrop responded to all of my e-mails in a timely manner even when he was on vacation this man answered my questions via e-mail. The final outcome of my case ended up with a reinstatement of Community Control in both Flagler and Saint Johns County. I never thought that I would be able to avoid prison as I was charged with Aggravated Stalking which carries a mandatory prison sentence. Mr. Waldrop in my opinion is an excellent Attorney and I would recommend him to anyone seeking legal aid. Thank you Brad for representing me and getting the job done!!”
